Azzarelli Outreach Clinic of St. John Paul II Parish

Kankakee, IL

The Azzarelli Outreach Clinic of St. John Paul II Catholic Parish Church was founded in 1999. Their volunteer medical providers and ancillary staff provide healthcare services to approximately 1,400 patients annually. At Azzarelli, the marginalized, uninsured, underinsured, and undocumented immigrants are all provided FREE healthcare. Their patients do not pay anything at all for the services. The clinic relies entirely on the generous donations of others to operate this community ministry.

For it is in giving that we receive.

St. Francis of Assisi
